I bugged him about Hikari last year at SDCC. He said the line was not dead but on the back burner to give more resources to higher profile lines. I know it has to be tough to divert resources to Hikari when the ROI on Pops! is so much higher.

Now if you could ask him about what is up with Vynl I would love hear what he has to say... ;-)

Yeah also I think part of it is (and this is a rumor) Mindstyle and Funko have a different relationship now...not sure if they were the ones actually producing hikari but I'm sure these things play into it, like how Super7 ended up doing their thing independent of funko with the figures that they still produce...Mindstyle had a ton of good stuff at Toy Fair but I don't think any of it had the Funko imprint or we'd have heard about it

That makes a lot of sense. You are not the first person to mention to me a spilt or change of direction between Funko & Mindstyle. bummer, it did seem like they were heavy on the manufacturing end of the Hikari line.

Still, I love your idea of resurrecting the line as more of a boutique limited run special event/Fumko-shop exclusive item.

I'm guessing nothing this year, maybe too big or delicate for the show?

Come to think of it, I've heard of this before but I never put the pieces together. It does make a ton of sense.

Yeah someone high up told me nearly 2 years ago to start grabbing as much Mindstyle Funko stuff (including Pop Asia pieces) as much as possible because they were going to be a thing of the past soon & this is what we've come to see. :-/
Logistically I think the best thing for the fans would be a Funko Shop SDCC Exclusive Hikari...that way they don't have to actually bring them to the booth. But I think the back burner on hikari stems from this situation.

there was that one Ron English Hikari planned that funko was going to release. I remember someone saying tome wow that looks really cool but it isn't funko so i won't be buying it....that was a confusing statement lol. then the mindstyle/funko partnership kinda went away and it looks like toy tokyo is going to be distributing it with mindstyle.

Couldn't even get near anyone who could shed any light on this as they were up on that second level of the Funko booth. I was actually supposed to get up there & even started shooting a little video once I got behind the rope, but it never happened.
